tv The Late Show With Stephen Colbert CBS October 14, 2016 11:35pm-12:37am EDT
>> stephen: hey, honey. yeah, i'll be home for dinner. we've got a great show-- chris pratt, scott bakula, and something called frederik the great, the world's most handsome horse. how handsome could a horse be? ? tonight i celebrate my love for you. >> stephen: tell you what, i might be late tonight. ? it seems the magic-- >> it's "the late show" with stephen colbert! tonight, stephen welcomes chris pratt, scott bakula and frederik
featuring jon batiste and "stay human." now from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert! captioning sponsored by cbs >> stephen: hey, everybody! ( cheers and applause ) welcome to "the late show." hey! what's going on? i'm stephen colbert. thank you so much. thank you, my friend. chris, hey paul, what's going on? hey, jesse. welcome to "the late show." i'm your host stephen colbert. how's everybody doing tonight? feeling all right? ( cheers and applause ) wow, that is good to hear because this weekend some jerk
a couple different places around new york city. thankfully, no one was killed, and everyone who was injured is out of the hospital. ( cheers and applause ) at this point, can't we assume that any new yorker buying a pressure cooker is up to no good? ( laughter ) no one who lives here cooks. in fact, if you don't have a seamless account, the f.b.i. has some questions for you. ( laughter ) one reason more people weren't hurt is that this guy is this-- is that this jerk left duffel bags on the street and two bombs were discovered by thieves snatching bags. because, as all new yorkers know, "if you see something, steal something." ( laughter ) ( applause ) i'd like to salute everybody in
that was fast. >> jon: real quick. >> stephen: his name is ahmad khan rahami-- or, as i'm calling him, evil v-neck lincoln. they caught him after a shoot- out in linden, new jersey. it's just a 12-minute drive away from his hometown of elizabeth, new jersey. note to suspects on the run: if you're planning an escape, don't do it during rush hour on the jersey turnpike. ( laughter ) ( applause ) here's what we know so far: he's 5'6," 200 pounds. so there's one place the f.b.i. didn't need to look for him: the gym. ( laughter ) i'm sorry, i shouldn't terror- shame. i know. ( laughter ) what else do we know? we also know he worked at his family's restaurant, first american fried chicken. one customer described him as "a very friendly guy-- he gave me
which explains why the initial f.b.i. warranted poster looked like this. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) seven herbs and spices, it's a secret. rahami should've known that that he couldn't terrorize us. new yorkers are not fazed by meatheads from new jersey coming into the city on a saturday night to make a lot of noise. we're used to it!on told reporters, "it was just a burning dumpster like you see around the city." ( cheers and applause ) that's right! that's all? ( cheers and applause ) if you really wanted to freak us out, try something we're not used to, like one block without mountains of urine-soaked garbage. ( laughter ) and look at this tweet from just a couple of hours after the explosion.
chelsea explosion, know that drunk new yorkers are walking around police tape to get into the club. ( laughter ) ( applause ) you barely disrupted our daily lives. okay? so a block got shut down so cops could look around. that happens here every time they shoot an episode of "law & order." new yorkers are used to danger. this is a city with a neighborhood called "hell's kitchen." the official new york city bird is the middle finger. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) and i dare you to name one other city where someone will punch you in the face just for saying "hi" on the street. incidentally, still a big fan, mr. baldwin. now say hi to some true new yorkers, mr. jon batiste and stay human. ( band playing )
>> stephen: all righty, then. all right. ( cheers and applause ) yeah, i'm very excited. we have first lady michelle obama on the show tomorrow night. >> jon: oh, my goodness. i'm so excited. that's going to be incredible! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: she is my queen. she is like the beyonce of people who will talk to me. ( laughter ) please join us. but i'm also real excited for our guests tonight. chris pratt, scott bakula, and frederik the great, the world's most handsome horse. ( cheers and applause ) i mean, did you hear that? >> jon: yeah! >> stephen: do you feel that? >> jon: yeah. >> stephen: the excitement in this room is palpable. jim, can we put up the countdown to horse clock? ( clip clop, clip clop, clip clop )
>> stephen: we borrowed this from cnn, thank you, gentlemen. ( clip clop ) okay, jim, can put that in silent mode. ( laughter ) and just to whet your frederik appetite, here's a little taste: why, hello there. wow. we'll have more on frederik the great, as the story develops. well, we've had a lot of fun talking about handsome horses d is some disturbing news out there-- donald trump. ( audience reacts ) on friday, trump made what he called a major announcement: >> president barack obama was born in the united states. period. >> stephen: all right, that's what's called a firm grasp of the obvious.
next he's going to announce water is wet, bears poop in the woods, and donald trump is not qualified to be president. ( cheers and applause ) but i'm not really irritated about that. it's everything else he said on friday that sticks in my craw. and i just recently had my craw cleaned. listen to what else he said. >> hillary clinton and her campaign of 2008, started the birther controversy. >> stephen: what? ( audience reacts ) that claim seems a little suspicious. if i didn't know better, i'd say you were a-- little help? >> world class liar. >> stephen: thank you.
because that claim has been proven false by politico, cnn, abc, npr, and "snapple." ( laughter ) yeah, there you go. ( applause ) but you were saying. >> hillary clinton and her campaign of 2008, started the birther controve i finished it. i finished it. >> stephen: no, you didn't. no, you didn't. ( laughter ) and i know you didn't because i was alive and on tv! but memory's a tricky thing. maybe i remember it one way, and donald trump is a liar. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) it's impossible to know the truth.
know the truth unless you have videotape, which we do. while we play the evidence, i'm going to do a little whittling. jim? >> if he wasn't born in this country, which is a real possibility-- i'm not saying it didn't happen, i'm saying it's a real possibility-- then he has pulled one of the great cons in the history of politics. people have birth certificates. he doesn't have a birth certificate. now he may have one, but there's something on that birth-- maybe religion, maybe it says he's a muslim, i don't know. i've been told very recently, anderson, that the birth certificate is missing. i've been told that it's not there and that it doesn't exist. and if that's the case-- >> who told you that? said, "they cannot believe what they are finding." what have they found? >> we're going to see what
business right now. and you know, his own family doesn't know the hospital he was born in, in hawaii. he's got a grandmother that says he was born in kenya and she was there! >> many people say it is not real, ok, that it is a forgery. was there a birth certificate? you tell me. you know, some people say that was not his birth certificate. i'm saying i don't know. nobody knows. and you don't know either. >> his mother was a u.s. citizen born in kansas so is he a natural-born citizen? >> who knows, who knows. >> stephen: wow. that took so long i was able to carve rodin's "the thinker." ( cheers and applause ) what are you thinking about? "i'm thinking he's a liar." oh! well, thank you for your opinion, unsue-able inanimate object.
but that wasn't even the biggest whopper trump pinched out. >> i finished it. i finished it. you know what i mean. >> stephen: no, i don't. no one knows what you mean. once again, you are... >> lyin', l-y-i-n'. >> stephen: l-y -- okay. good to know how to spell that. now, you might mean, if i was being charitable, in 2011, you made obama release his long-form birth certificate, thereby ending the controversy. but that's a bigger load of horse manure than they just hosed out of my third guest. tonight, frederik the great. again, coming up in just-- it's --40 minutes and two seconds. so beautiful! ( cheers and applause )
that obama released his birth certificate in 2008, but that wasn't good enough for you. you demanded to see a "long form" birth certificate in 2011. and after obama released that, you called it a forgery, citing "israeli science" and announced you were sending a team of investigators to hawaii to uncover the truth." who were these people that we never heard from again? were they a fat captain, his first mate, a movie star. and the rest? ( cheers and applause ) and then right before the 2012 election, you issued this challenge. >> if barack obama opens up and gives his college records and applications and if he gives his passport applications and records, i will give to the charity of his choice a check
>> stephen: first of all, that's a weird threat. "you got a nice place here, i'd hate to see something happen to it, like me giving $5 million to the march of dimes." i remember this particular one like it was yesterday because, back then, i had a super pac full of secret campaign cash. and "i" offered to donate $1 million to the charity of your choice, if you, donald trump, would let me dip my ( bleep ) in your ( bleep ). ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: oh, oh! >> stephen: i'm guessing that is going to be bleeped by cbs. ( laughter ) if you would like to know what i just said, go to comedy central's web site, i think it's
look it up and you will hear what i said. it was a pretty fun show. now, for some reason, donald, you did not take the deal. i'm going to guess because your ( bleep ) was already full of vladimir putin's ( bleep ). ( cheers and applause ) like caviar! like caviar! ( laughter ) now, let's take one last look at what you said on friday. >> president barack obama was born in the united states. period. >> stephen: no, not period. question mark! "( bleep ) you" exclamation point. ( cheers and applause ) ?
you don't get to flog this issue for five years and then act like you're correcting everybody else! we're not crazy. we were there! we all saw you do it. even the people who support you saw you do it. it's "why" they support you. by the way, now that you've admitted that the president was born here, a lot of people think you owe obama a $5 million donation. ( cheers and applause ) he's probably waiting on that check right now. you know, like most of your contractors. of course, you probably won't make good on this because the "other" other thing you lie about is giving money to charity. it's estimated that a $5 million gift from trump's own pocket now would be more than the gop nominee has given to charity in
cheez-it grooves are the perfect union of a cheez-it and a chip. you mean like they got married? umm... i guess... you'd make a pretty bride in that wedding gown. oh, it's a lab coat so... hey everyone, joe's getting married! bam bam ba bam... oh, i'm not... we take time for our cheese to mature... ...in our crispy cheez-it grooves. ? ? power, power to the lord ? ? power! lord ? ? when cold and flu hold you back try theraflu expressmax, now in new caplets. it's the only cold & flu caplet that has a maximum strength formula
for a powerful comeback. new expressmax caplets. this is the story of how mr. bonejangles met his match. mr. bonejangles was always looking for something. but he never found it. until one day... seven in dog time... exactly what he didn't know he was looking for fell right in his lap. was he expecting the perfect toy at an amazing price? no, of course not, he's a dog. but that's the beauty of a store full of surprises. you never know what you're gonna find, but you know you're gonna love it. marshalls. your surprise is waiting. ?
we asked a group of young people when they thought they should start saving for retirement. then we asked some older people when they actually did start saving. this gap between when we should start saving and when we actually do is one of the reasons why too many of us aren't prepared for retirement. just start as early as you can. it's going to pay off in the future.
guest, i want to remind you again about our last guest, frederik the great, the world's most handsome horse. he will be out here in only-- 30 minutes and 38 seconds. trust me, turn on your a.c. 'cause it's going to get hot in here. ( cheering ) speaking of hot, you know my first guest from his roles in the blockbusters "guardians of the galaxy" and "jurassic world." his new movie is "the magnificent seven." >> how about we take 'em over into that mine there? >> uh-- whoa. this is as good as place as any. easy. gentlemen, allow me a moment to show you something quite miraculous. >> you show us our money! pick a card. is this your card. >> stephen: please welcome the delightful and talented chris pratt! ( band playing )
>> stephen: they're very nice audiences we have every night. they don't always give standing ovations. >> oh, really? what a beautiful theater. >> stephen: isn't a gorgeous theater? >> gorgeous. >> stephen: speaking of gorgeous, have you seen that horse? ( laughter ) >> yes, i have. >> stephen: extraordinary. it's a problem for me. >> stephen: are you in a relationship? >> yes, because i'm married, but i felt feelings for that horse. i'm not kidding, stephen. i saw that horse. you guys, be careful. i really saw that horse and i went-- oh-- >> stephen: gets you on a primal level. >> so beautiful! >> stephen: i just want to jump
not a metaphor. >> yeah. >> stephen: mm-hmm. >> it's hard to explain until you see the horse. i have to explore this. i have to call my wife after this. >> stephen: you're an artist, you can't control your feelings. >> you're right. whoo! frederik! ( laughter ) >> stephen: the last time we saw each other was 2003 when we were doing a movie called "strangers wian ( laughter ) that's called a "cult hit." ( laughter ) you played the love interest for amy sedaris. i think they have a clip of you in the movie right now.
wow, check out the ( bleep ) on that arm! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: 13 years ago. >> did you know that movie cost me $3,000 to be in? >> stephen: what do you mean? we paid you, right? >> well, no-- well, yes, you did. but this is a testament to how much we love doing what we do that we would pay to do it. it was something called a local hire only role so they only want to pay someone from new york or new jersey to do to role. they didn't want to pay to put somebody up. >> stephen: you were from los angeles. >> yes, and i flew myself, pretended i lived here, stayed in a hotel and slept on people's couches. it would have broke about even but in the middle i had to fly home for one weekend. >> stephen: to los angeles? >> to los angeles, yeah.
was doing a tv show called "everwood" at the time. >> stephen: sure. >> and i had to go to court because i had a warrant out for my arrest, which is pretty awesome to say. >> stephen: wow! >> pretty hard core guy. >> stephen: yeah. >> it was like for an insurance ticket that i never paid. and, you know, so i flew home and did this thing and i came back and, yeah, it cost me $3,000. but it was totally worth it. i worked with you, paul, and phillip seymour hoffman was in the movie. >> stephen: yeah. i thought, that guy's really nice. i hope he works. and then i didn't see you in anything for a few years, and then parks and rec as andy. >> yeah. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: you're a big star and you talk about getting in shape, but i kind of miss fat pratt. do you miss him at all?
my wife does, too. she likes to cook and i don't get to eat as much of her cooking as i used to. >> stephen: yeah. >> he's not gone forever. he's just on vacation for a couple of years, but he's coming back. >> stephen: now, you like our friend nick offerman, you're an outdoors-y guy. you like to fish, hunt, camp. >> yeah. >> stephen: this is a great picture of you with friends out in the desert someplace. >> yeah, that was on easter down in texas. >> stephen: that's sweet. >> that's my friends jared and darrell. we did that on easter. they've got a big ranch down in texas, awesome place. they've got lots of land out there and they have this big cross. it was on saturday the day before easter.
we've got to bring it up this great big hill at some point. i said, let's do it right now. they said, you know, we didn't bring you down here to put you to work. i said, no, i want to do it. it was the saturday before easter. that's what jesus was doing 2,000 years ago. so it was awesome. it took us two days, it was super heavy. and it was rewarding and awesome. >> ste: drag a cross up a hill, i think more people might go to church if that was the service and chris pratt is dragging a cross up a hill, would anyone attend? ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: we'll take a break and be back with more chris pratt. >> cool. ( band playing )

my mother passed 2003, but she always told me i don't care if you turn out to be a great athlete or whatever but, you need to make sure you get your college degree. sometimes i call the house, just to hear her voice. (phone ringing) answering machine: hi, leave a message after the beep. (beep) hey mom, this is larry. i just want to let you know that uh, i fulfilled the promise that you held me to.
( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) >> stephen: we're back with our friend chris pratt, everybody. chris, you're a big star now, but as we were saying -- >> go on, be more specific. ( laughter ) >> stephen: you're a global superstar? >> oh-- no, sorry. >> stephen: do you think if you would have gotten famous young, it would have messed with you? >> oh, yeah. it messes with you regardless, probably. i feel bad for kids who get famous really young because it's important to make your mistakes in relatively obscurity so you can say, wow, i shouldn't have done that. going to distance myself from that move from now on and become a better person. but you can really be defined by
faris. i'm a working actor. nobody knew who i was. she was a big movie star. it was nice to see how people treated her that were in her life. that was a good lesson coming into the last years of my life because you started to realize you can be surround bid people who are going to be deferential and kind of be "yes men," and it taught me some important lessons and i was able to see that, you know, you've got to really nurture the relationships of people that you have who will call you on your bull (bleep) and the people who would have you over to dinner if i was still a coupon salesman or waiter or struggling actor. >> stephen: you were a coupon salesman.
>> stephen: isn't the nature of coupons that you give them away for free? ( laughter ) how do you sell a coupon? >> i was a door-to-door salesman for about two years, and it was really promotions. it was $20 and you could get oil change force your car. >> stephen: give me your approach. >> how you doing? >> stephen: yeah, the kids are in the back. good. >> meineke sent us over with these for oil changes. it's four oil changes, $20. >> stephen: i'll let you know. >> no, i have about 20 to give out, you fill this out, cash, credit, check. >> stephen: i'll call the police if you don't get off my porch. >> call the police, because we would be happy to service their cars, too! ( cheers and applause ) ( laughter ) >> stephen: were you good at it? >> i was pretty good. it was one of these multi-level
if you worked really hard, you could open your own office. >> stephen: and somebody would get a lot of money. >> yes, i would make somebody very rich. i opened my own office at 19. >> stephen: so you're doing this as a teenager. >> yeah. i got a minivan, opened my office in colorado. i ended up losing my ass getting an insurance ticket i could never pay or show up for, hence the arrest warrant. but i lost my ass and momma had to fly me home but, yeah, for a while i was riding high. ( laughter ) ( applause ) >> stephen: does it feel good to be nice to the people who bailed you out? >> yeah, i always say, whatever you're selling, i'll buy three. >> stephen: we've got to cut that out because you're doomed, chris pratt! ( laughter ) >> totally fine. >> stephen: lovely to see you again. let's not make it another 13 years! ( cheers and applause ) congratulations! "the magnificent seven" opens
chris pratt, everybody! we'll be right back with scott bakula! ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) king me. (rico thinking): this must be how odell beckham feels when he scores a game winning touchdown. giant's touchdown! (crowd noise) (odell beckham thinking): this must be how rico felt when he triple jumped mr. sanchez
i'm hall of famer jerry west and my life is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto? significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto? is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke.
to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know.
( band playing ) ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey! welcome
back, everybody! just a friendly programming reminder, we're going to have the world's most handsome horse in only 11 minutes and 12 seconds. stay tuned. you're going to want to be able to tell your grandchildren you were there. ( laughter ) but first, my next guest tonight is a good friend of this show. he starred as sam beckett on "quantum leap" and captain jonathan archer on "star trek: enterprise." he now stars as special agent dwayne pride on "ncis: new orleans." please welcome, scott bakula! ( cheers and applause )
>> thank you! >> stephen: nice to see you again. >> they just ease you he you don't even know it's over. >> stephen: i've got to ask you this, did you see the horse? >> so here's the deal about the horse. while you and pratt have been screwing around -- three dates and a phone number. >> stephen: you got the digits from the horse? >> i have been riding the horse. ( laughter ) >> stephen: that is a metaphor. >> yep. you tell me -- >> stephen: legally on cbs, i can't.
you know, donald would know if that was a metaphor or not. >> stephen: he would. >> what do you think he would say? >> stephen: what do you think donald would say? >> yes. >> stephen: my mane is more handsome than that horse. ( laughter ) ( applause ) somebody give me an apple. ( laughter ) i told you last time when you were on the show with the "quantum leap" bit. you were my savior in "quantum leap." i watched that show incessantly. i loved it. there used to be marathons of it on tbs or tnt, and i was so unemployed, i would watch you all day long. my wife would come home and say, what did you do today? not, this i promise. ( laughter ) you are also captain archer from the enterprise. >> yes. >> stephen: are you surprised by the global reach of science fiction fandom? >> yes, there is not a corner of
you would think if i were in india, i would be okay, but it's not true. >> stephen: people have come up and given you stories about how you inspired them when you were on the enterprise. >> the best stories are when people say i watched the show with my family and it brought us together. that's the best story. but then they're from russia or el >> stephen: have you done gone to the conventions. >> yeah, yeah. conventions are fun. they're weird but they're fun. ( laughter ) >> stephen: what are more of the weirder things? >> it's not easy to see your face tattooed on somebody else's back. >> stephen: really? yeah, like when i had yours removed-- it's painful, but you get tired of that. >> stephen: was it a good likeness? >> okay. okay.
other faces on the back, also. >> stephen: uh-huh. who were you sharing this back with, do you remember? >> other folks from the show. >> stephen: okay. >> i knew them. >> stephen: all just captains? >> yes, and we weren't engaged in any activity. >> stephen: it wasn't fan fiction? >> i saw a picture today -- no, i'm not going to tell. >> stephen: what?! ( audience reacts ) >> it's not very smart of me to do this, but i did a "playgirl" a hundred million years ago. >> stephen: you were in"p >> yes. ( cheering ) >> i was doing a radio show and they had pictures going up, being generated as i was talking and i looked up and they said-- they were asking me about this funny stuff about that, and i looked up and there i was, and i looked at the picture and i was in tighty whities, and my body
they photoshopped -- somebody photoshopped my lower half to my body. >> stephen: why did they need to replace your lower half? ( laughter ) >> we're not going there. >> stephen: okay. >> no. it was bizarre. >> stephen: what issue? what year are we looking at? >> we're not. it's not a secret i did this, just have to be careful that -- >> stephen: be careful if you pose for "playgirl," you've got to be careful! ( laughter ) did you at least look at it and go, you know, i'm glad i had a photo taken of me when i had a body like that. i did a nude scene on tv, live on stage, when i was 19. the director said would you do this nude, and i thought, i don't think it will get any
speaking of being in good shape, you've gone vegan. >> that's correct. >> stephen: it's not a drag at all. >> oh, yeah. i'm working in new orleans now, it's a drag. >> stephen: speaking of which, you've come to love music and the city. >> yep. >> stephen: john is from new orleans. >> i'm aware of that. you're playing piano and singing. >> stephen: do you want to do something with the band? >> sure. >> stephen: scott bakula, everybody! ? ? >> jon: hey, come on, y'all! ? ? ( audience clapping with music ) ? i gotta girl from new orleans, little liza jane

( laughter ) he is a beautiful horse and a very large one at that. what's a friesian horse? netherlands. they were almost extinct until the netherlands brought them back. >> stephen: what were they bred for? he's huge. >> they go back to the crusaders. >> stephen: a war horse? >> yes, he's a war horse. they used them for carriages, the queens. >> stephen: what makes frederik the world's most beautiful horse? >> well, it is election year and the world voted him the world's
